The Epilepsy Foundation hosts and sponsors a variety of conferences to support innovation and research in the field. 

Upcoming Conferences

2018 American Epilepsy Society Annual Meeting

November 30-December 4, 2018, New Orleans, LA

Applying for Conference Support - due date May 1, 2019

We believe in creating open channels of communication between people living with epilepsy, their families, advocates, researchers, healthcare professionals, industry, and investors. To accelerate research and care forward, it must be shared, modeled upon, and expanded.  

Requests for support are accepted two times per year by: May 1 and November 1.  Requests should be sent via email to grants@efa.org and must include the amount requested and the three criteria listed below.

If you need support for hosting a conference, reach out to us. We have set aside limited funds to sponsor ongoing conferences in our community. We will prioritize conferences that satisfy the following 3 criteria: 

  1. An agenda with highly innovative topics on epilepsy 
  2. Inclusion of both basic and clinical science perspectives 
  3. Conference hosts provides travel support for young investigators and members of under-represented groups so they can attend the proceedings 

Please contact grants@efa.org for more information.
